3-in-1 fry-up

3-in-1 fry-up

The Japanese penchant for making meals from a selection of small dishes has never been fully reconciled with the minute size of most apartment kitchens. Belle Maison’s Tamago Hitotsu de Tamagoyaki Furaipan (literally “Frying Pan That Makes Tamagoyaki With One Egg”) goes some way toward solving that issue.

This compartmentalized skillet allows you to prepare all the pan-fried gubbins for your bento in one fell swoop — and yes, you’ll only need one egg! Belle Maison reports that it shifted 3,000 of these babies in their first month of sale, so they’re obviously onto a good thing here.

2,980 yen. Available from kitchen goods stores and direct from www.bellemaison.jp

    It would seem to be a tangle with in frying pan outlook. I simply cannot see it as something I would want to use.

    I agree with Smythe - this fry pan is not on my "Need to Buy" list. Just thinking about attempting to clean all of these separate compartments after frying up your egg and other ingredients gives me a major headache.

    Well, if you were making tamagoyaki every morning (as some people do), I suppose I could see the point. But really, the sausages and veggies can easily be cooked in another pan together. Everyone has 2 burners... Also, tamagoyaki takes about 30 seconds to make and cleanup of the pan is about as long, so I think this gadget is really designed to save you 1 minute of your morning. I can't say I've ever thought to myself "I wish I could do this all in one pan".

    Not everyone has two burners, My apartment doesn't even have a stove, we can only afford one burner at the moment and honestly we only have enough space for one burner, I find this a neat frying pan and i have seen one similar at some home goods stores but were in a triangle shape. I have a regular frying pan and to save time in the morning for my husband rushing out to work i just cook everything at once in the pan already but it is difficult to do it when you are changing up how you do eggs each time haha.

    Agree they don't and most Aparments(espcially older ones) don't come with a stove. Need to supply your own.

    Fry-pan looks ok but I alrady got one with a 3-part divider.

    While I wouldnt buy one for me there deffinetly is a market for this. But I really would wish to have a pot with divider, cause boiling foods takes much longer time than stir-fry.

    stop complaining some of you. Consider it an experience and learn to live in small spaces. I have one fry pan, a pot that I can cook soup, rice,pasta and a 17inch chinese wok. The pot is used as a steamer with a special steamer stand. Very economical and saves energy. This pan, I am not very sure, 'cos the different items use different cooking time and heat. Not useful for me.

    It's a good idea. Is that a non-stick pan? I never fry food, ever, because I'm one of those killjoy health-nuts, but if I did, I'd probably buy a pan like that to prevent my eggs running into my bacon.

    too complicated for me, as different items will take longer to cook. I prefer to cook everything together in the same pan, starting with the longest cooking items. Being a gourmet is something I've never been accused of.

    Simple yet brilliant. It's like one of those hot pot cookers with a divider in the middle to allow 2 different flavors. I'm not sure what I'll cook with this 3-in-1 fry pan - but I love the idea of segregating my food :p

    as a morning bento maker, I think its a good idea. I think its aimed at housewives or those with kids/husbands who are in a stress in the morning. However I like my bentos to be healthy so I dont really fry that much... but If I did, i would totally think about buying it. I wonder how sealed the sides are? Like could you effectively shallow fry something in one segment without the oil spilling into the next?

    Ooooh i DO want this~! Dannasan eats meat.. i do not.. i could cook our breakfasts together without needing to wash the pan between or dirty a separate pan!

    You can also get the standard triple-divided fry-pan at most bigger shops, Loft, etc.

    Standard triple-divide might work better if you make sunny-side up, rather than japanese style tamago-yaki.

    womanforwomen nobody was complaining, we were stating facts towards another commenter who said everyone has 2 burners. In the US i had a large stove and 4 burners and had dinner cooked in no time but here I have one burner, one tiny space for said burner and do the best I can with that so I think pots and pans with dividers are great to have. That was the point of what everyone was saying. READ THINGS BEFORE COMMENTING :D
